Pop of Color!
Not one for white or ivory dresses? Wanting to make a statement and stand out from the crowd? Why not try a pop of color for you wedding day look! While everyone tends to stick to the traditional white or ivory we are seeing a trend of pale colored dresses. This made us interested to find out is there anything behind the color of dress we choose to wear? Just for fun we did some digging on the internet and this is what we found.
White: White is associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity, and virginity. It is considered to be the color of perfection. This color of choice for the traditional bride is and will always a staple in bridal fashion.
Ivory: The same thing that is said about a white wedding gown can be said about an ivory one. It is also a very traditional color. However, some believe that ivory is also a symbol of tainted innocence. This is old school thinking and nowadays brides go for ivory because it looks better than white on their skin.
Red: Red may symbolize many things, the positives being love, infatuation, strong emotions, excitement, energy, strength, and passion. Many different types of cultural-based weddings are where red wedding gowns tend to be the most popular. But don’t count out the bride that simply wants to make a statement and stand out from the crowd.
Pink: The color pink represents innocence, a child-like personality, freshness, purity, love, good health, and good life. It can also be worn to show a more flirtatious personality. Pink is normally a color associated with women and their feminine side.
Blue: Blue is obviously associated with the color of water and the sea. It represents calmness and peacefulness. Blue also conveys femininity, life, purity, etc., just as water does. Blue can also symbolize
stability, security and lifelong loyalty. Blue is also a traditional Irish wedding dress color.
Black: Black is often looked upon as an eerie color—and an odd choice for a bride. But black wedding dresses are here and they are here to stay. Black can also be a color of elegance or class (such as a black-tie only
event, and black evening gowns). Black also represents power, sexuality, sophistication, formality, wealth, mystery, depth, and best of all, sheer style.
